the problem of not sliding back into old habits is why i try to lose weight only very slowly, and don't restrict myself further in what i eat - i'd be able to cut sweets almost completely for a little while, for example, and same with some other foods, but i am trying to find a balance between losing weight and finding a something i feel i can stay with possibly forever, without constantly feeling deprived ... and i am not strong enough to do without sweets forever, for example.
Have you tried rinsing with warm salty water - 1 big TB in half a glass? Even if someone has to take blood pressure medecine, it's OK to try this every 3 hours for a day or two and if not better, run to the dentist. You can still drink alcohol if you want to.
kerouac - stop whining already and get thee to the dentist. You might have oral cancer. Or you might not. Only one way to find out.
As for me - well, nobody will ever again have the right to accuse me of being full of shit. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow, since I still can't keep anything down and this has stopped being amusing. On the bright side, though, 6 pounds lost.
I'll be around more later on, if I can manage it. Have been missing all the witty repartee!
The "fear tactic" always works... Glad the miracle happened.
The person with the advance medical degrees told me today that I could look forward to another day or two of this nonsense, and it is better to make sure that whatever is bothering me gets out of there for good. French doctors practice "tough love".
I am feeling better though, and this morning was seriously considering a cup of coffee, but realized that I was delusional and possibly suicidal, so stuck with Smecta, instead. My joy knows no bounds.
I believe there is a law that says 75% of the time you will only heal if you go out if your way to seek medical advice, spend a lot if time waiting to see a medical person, and pay to receive their sage advice. In our case here in the U.S., the more you pay, the quicker you heal.
hope you both wake up feeling completely well tomorrow ...
as for me, i installed this app on my phone that is supposed to count how much i walk. but after going up and down the stairs once, i supposedly walked over 400 meters, so i suppose the thing is not working that well ...
